Ok, since this is on a new engine, is there going to be max accel angles like the quake 3 engine has? You guys should know what I'm talking about, hopefully.
Please God, say no.
I think you need to be a bit more specific.. :) People have so many different names for things\ideas as to how things work so I'm not quite sure what I'd be answering atm..
I think this is called

Velocity Snapping

hehe, ok, there's no velocity snapping in RIK. :)
So if you strafe in a straight line you can continuously gain speed? or is there a cap of some kind?
Technically speaking, there's no such thing as strafing in a straight line and gaining speed. Speed is gained by changing your movement direction, even if it's only marginal changes that might appear as "going straight".
So I'm not quite sure what you're after here.. Below is the best explanation of velocity snapping I know of. And this does not apply to RIK. Does that answer your question? :P
(Actually, nothing there really applies to RIK)
I guess I just have to wait to play it and find out, but yes, you have answered one of my many questions.
Its just too bad I won't be able to play when it is released in open beta, gonna be homeless soon with no internet. But one day.

"gonna be homeless soon with no internet" - Really? Thats a big society problem in usa... in europe u "can live" in every country wihout money! Also in the not-rich parts like balkan and est-europe the state gives u money! OMG, thats make me soo sad...

(In Germany/Switzerland/Austria the Internet is listed as "minimum to live", in Switzerland its like a human right, also in the jail u have internet connection, own notebook or pc, but u need to get it from family, u cant buy anything...)

It makes me just angry that your ppl in the US just let the companies do, whatever they r doing, so they get rich and fly to the moon, but other ppl still sleep on the street... pfuii!

If I can do something for you (help), call me, or whatsapp: +41 79 195 81 58

PS: Whatsapp has some problems with country codes (maybe just in switzerland), if u want to contact me in whatsapp, maybe u need to remove the country code and replace it with "0"

It's my own fault really, but there are Libraries with free internet access. I'm actually typing this at the Library right now. I needed a break from the computer, had to work on my bad habits and get back into shape. Been successful so far. I do agree with you however, America can suck my balls.
